The first thing Nintendo will ask you to do here and it works if there is no damage to the system or power supply is this.

Unplug the power supply from the Wii AND from the wall. Leave it unplugged for at least 2min (again at least 2min) so it can clear out. Plug it back in to the wall and the Wii and it should work.

Assuming your wall jack is good try to hook up a lamp or something to it. Or if it has the reset button on it then hit that to reset the internal breaker on it. And follow the above tip. Lastly make sure there is no light switch tied to that electrical socket that might of been turned off on accident. All common sense things, but easily missed also. If none of this works you must assume power supply (easy to replace at most game outlets or retail stores) Or there is damage to the Wii!!!

Hope it helps rate accordingly.

All you have to do is smash your wii into a billion pieces, staple them all together, flush it down the toilet, and buy a new wii.

hope this helps, cuz it sure did for me!

Wii randomly stopped working, wont turn on


Wii Console Turns On, But Has No Power Light Situation:
  • The power LED on the system does not come on, but the system still powers on and plays

Information:
If the Wii Console is still working normally, it is likely that the power LED is broken.
This issue will remain limited to the Power LED, and will not get any worse.
Unless the system is having other problems, continue using the console regularly for a few weeks to determine whether this interferes with the enjoyment of game play.

Situation Not Resolved:
If, after using the system for awhile, the Power LED not coming on is too distracting, the Wii Console does carry a one-year warranty.
We are happy to inspect and, if necessary, fix the system at no charge within the warranty period. To start the repair process, click here.

My wii stopped working from a power outage and it doesnt usally do that.


It just means the flow of power to your Wii was interrupted for a period of time long enough to cause it to have no power to run. It's not a big deal and a good bet would be to purchase a surge protector and plug your Wii into that if power outages are common for you.

My wii just stopped working, no power. Is it the


If you checked the connections, then the problem most likely has occurred on the motherboard. I recommend taking it to Geek Squad and having them look at it. Unfortunately the only other thing that you would be able to do other than get it looked at is purchase a new one.

Wii completely stops working after power outage


I just had the same problem as everyone else. I had a brief power loss and our new Wii system's power would no longer work. To fix the problem, I unplugged everything from our Wii and unplugged the power cord from the outlet. I let the system set for 10 minutes and re-plugged the power only. That did the trick. Then I was able to plug everything back up and we are now back to playing.

Supposedly, doing the steps above resets the Wii according to the Nintendo online trouble shooting guide.

Wii consoles not working


Hold in the power button on the Wii console for about six seconds until it powers off. The light on the power button should turn red after you do this, not amber. Press the power button again to boot the Wii.

9 out of 10 times this fixes all weird issues. If you simple power it down to the amber light, it's not actually off, so you really aren't getting a "cold" reboot.

Good luck.
